Getting GD and GK to work together in the ring

I coach and under 13 girls team and having only 7 players, I am unable to continually swap and change my players. I have two set players that play GD and GK, however, as much as I have tried they do not work together. There isn't an issue with them personally, I just don't think they understand they need to work together. I am just after some sort of different approach to teaching them to work together than what I have tried. I have tried teaching them to work together to defend the space in the ring, and also to talk to each other and call swaps, double team a player etc..

Perhaps you could set up a small obstacle course for them. Blindfold one player and ask the other to guide her through using just her voice. It might help to build trust and a bond between them that will then help with the drills you have been using.
